Calan Mai (May Day)

Beltane and the wheel of the year turns again… Bright blessings to all who mark the day

May in London

“On Nos Galan Mai or May Eve, villagers gather hawthorn (Welsh: draenen wen, ‘white-thorn’) branches and flowers which they would then use to decorate the outside of their houses, celebrating new growth and fertility.” (source)
